Does Your 1989 Buick Skyhawk Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 Buick Skyhawk, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Skyhawk feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Buick Skyhawk in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Skyhawk suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Skyhawk steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Buick Skyhawk Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Buick Skyhawk suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 Buick Skyhawk’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Buick Skyhawk shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Buick Skyhawk’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 Skyhawk Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Buick's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Buick Skyhawk? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Buick Skyhawk power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Skyhawk’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
